AVA (Alliance of Valiant Arms) suffered from negative criticisms due to an obstructive free-to-play model, with slow level progression and capacity upgrading with the help of ingame credits earned only. Moreover the model featured what many players dislike: time-limited unlocks, which allow you to use a weapon on the basis of rent.
